Shorty’s BBQ

It’s not all pretty, but you know what you’re going to get. Take the ribs for example. They were mushy and thoroughly overcooked. They would have been better served boneless and chopped to be eaten with a fork, or better yet – on a sandwich. The pork itself wasn’t bad. It was covered in a really good barbecue sauce. Both sweet and tangy, the sauce was thin enough to coat the ribs, but thick enough to stick to the meat too. But the well cooked pork tasted more like roast than barbecue. It was respectable, but it alone wasn’t anything that would make you return.
